Grand Champions
The Most Beautiful Horses in the World!

Welcome to the Grand Champions ID Site!

Wow! The Grand Champion ID Site
has been visited over ONE MILLION TIMES!

Thanks for all your support over the years, here's looking forward to 1,000,000 more!

This site has been created by Grand Champion fanciers, for Grand Champions fanciers! On these pages you will find a near-complete guide to all Grand Champion Horses that have been produced over the years. It is a labour of love, a way to give something back to the wonderful horses who had shared my childhood. This site is always growing and expanding, so check back often for all the new features!

The Grand Champion ID Site could not have been made possible without the help of the people at Mutiny Bay Enterprises, who provided pictures from old catalogs that grace the pages of this site. And, most of all, it's the help of people like you, who have been filling in the gaps and providing insight from the very beginning. Couldn't have done it without you!

If anyone has more pictures or information about the Grand Champions they would like to see added to the site, please e-mail me :) Credit will be given to everyone.

As always, most of the pictures form this site can be taken and used for your own site, but please ask first! And do remember to give credit with a link back to the site :) The pictures used have come from a variety of different sources, including my own collection of horses and back card, catalogs, and other collector's albums. Remember to thank them!

Important Note: Currently Alpha International - the parent company of Empire Toys, who owns Grand Champions - is on and indeterminate hiatus. Because of this, production of the line has been put on hold since spring 2007. That means no *new* Grand Champion Toys will be appearing on store shelves anytime soon. The Blue Ribbon Program has remained unaffected by this so far. I am unsure what affect this has on Revell Toys (which manages the Grand Champions brand overseas) but it appears supply has dwindled in the European countries too.

We are all hoping that Grand Champions will be back in production and in a store near you some time in near future; more information will be posted as it is known.
